for the up and coming meeting with Jerry Linhares on July 20th. The Lord met us
there and afterward Bro. Gerald and I went to McDonald's to have coffee. As
we were having our coffee a black man walked by with a large cross around
his neck and as he passed by I said “I like your cross.” He stopped and said
this is not just a decoration I do believe in Jesus Christ. We invited him to
set a minute so that we could pray for him. His name is Ira Cole a truck driver
who lived on Jackson Miss. who was on the way to Texas with a load. Ira was
also a minister who was struggling with what God wanted him to do and how
to go about doing it. This was a man who looked lonely and depressed. As we
held hands Gerald and I prayed. As we prayed the Lord gave me a word of
prophesy for him. I gave him what the Lord gave to me. Ira went on his way
greatly encouraged knowing that he had a divine appointment this morning.
Later Gerald called me to tell me that he had stopped by the store just down
from the Church to put up an announcement about Jerry coming. The owner
is someone who Bro. Gerald has been praying for. He told Gerald that he plans
to come, this was a positive response that encouraged Bro. Gerald.
